Just credit where credit is due

So back in blog 2.0 I’d mentioned how the Wikipedia article on EVH said that he tuned his B-string to be just intonated against the G-string. This allowed him to play (some) major thirds with distortion without the dissonance even tempered major thirds cause.

Well, it seems that open-G players (like Keef and his inspirators) have long used this trick. In fact, it seems like it’d work better in open-G than in standard tuning.

Rather cool place you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such topics and anything connected to this matter. BTW, why don't you change design :).
